I've seen you falling in and out of things
Your heart heats up
Your heart gets cold
Lights up and yearns again
What's your story
I don't want flash or glory
Then the crash
The what was that
And why'd I fall so fast

Slow down
We've got time
I need to know
That you're all mine

Have you got love to burn
Kisses for days
Don't you wanna grab onto something real and never let it get away
I don't have love to burn
Time to waste
Cause I've waited far too for the spark to become a flame
And if it comes true
I'd only have love to burn for you

I can live without you happy by myself
But you get to me
You make me feel like there is no one else
What cha doing
Leaving hearts in ruins
Can't you see
For us to be that just wont fly with me

Slow down
Let's get it right
Make it last
Let's start tonight

Have you got love to burn
Kisses for days
Don't you wanna grab onto something real and never let it get away
I don't have love to burn
Time to waste
Cause I've waited for to long for the spark to become a flame
And if it comes true
I'd only have love to burn for you

I see you through
If I were sure you'd feel this way for me
It's gotta be much more than anything we say
For love to ever last
I need to know it's not just touch and go
That you are here to stay
Here to stay
That you are here to stay

Have you got love to burn
Kisses for days
Tonight we won't let anything get in our way

Have you got love to burn
Kisses for days
Don't you wanna grab onto something real and never let it get away
I don't have love to burn
Time to waste
Cause I've waited for to long for the spark to become a flame
And if it comes true
I'd only have love to burn for you

    General CommentI'm not sure i have the meaning right, but i think this song was meant for someones she's fallen for, but doesn't yet have.

    Have you got love to burn
    Kisses for days
    (i thnk this is her way of asking do you like me? do you want to spend your time being with me?)
    Don't you wanna grab onto something real and never let it get away
    (this is like why pass me up when i'm here, when im realy. this is love)
    I don't have love to burn
    Time to waste
    Cause I've waited far too for the spark to become a flame
    (she's waited too long to speak up about how she's felt)
    And if it comes true
    I'd only have love to burn for you
    (and if by some chance they got together, she'd only love him.)

    General CommentI haven't actually heard the song but I bought it just recently. I think the song means that she really likes this guy but she's getting tired of waiting for him. Even though that is the case, she still will always love him.

    General Commentok people so for me this song means that she is talkin to this guy she likes and the guy apparently likes her back but he just wants to hook up with her and she wants commitment; she is saying this guy is moving too quickly and she wants to wait because she is not sure about him being with her formally later on "whats your story i dont want a flash of glory then the crash the what was that and why did i fall so fast" she's saying she doesn't want to hook up with him like to have a one night stand and then feel bad about what she did because the guy wont be there for her seriously after that night "i need to know its not just touch and go , that u are here to stay" proves my point too....
    im pretty sure it is about that sorry for my boldness lol

    General Commentto me...i think this song about her being tired and impatient. its obvious she is feelin for the guy and by saying she only has love to burn for him, is that she only wants to love him. and she doesnt have love to burn or time to waste for anyone else. she knows where her priority is but she knows that they have had something and wants it to be the more that it can be....it kind of reminds me of myself a little but not....i just think that she wants a long term things not a hit it and quit it

    MemorySo if anyone has ever watched this show you would know that Tommy (her producer) wrote this song for her to sing on her birthday. Honestly I believe its from his perspective. Because they played this back and forth game of being in love and she was too young for him, he dated her sister, she dated other guys. He gives this to her as a gift on her 18th birthday when they can finally be together. It obviously works from her point of view as well because they've both gone through so much to finally be with one another.
